Fire crews and equipment extinguished an industrial fire Monday afternoon, Dec. 19, at 795 Sam T. Barkley Drive.

The call to Thunderbird Industries (formerly Metal Impact) came just after 4 p.m.

New Albany Fire Chief Mark Whiteside said NAFD crews arrived and observed smoke coming from a ventilation duct on the roof of the building. They entered the building and found a large commercial air compressor on fire inside the system. Chief Whiteside said in-house Thunderbird Industries personnel were able keep the fire in check until NAFD arrived. New Albany firemen extinguished the blaze and made sure all fire was out.

There were no injuries and no damage to the building. The compressor suffered damage, but the extent of damage will have to be determined by industrial repair people.

NAFD units were back on station in New Albany by 5:15 pm. Three trucks from both New Albany Stations and 14 fire personnel responded to the industrial fire.
